As I'm sure everyone is aware the Corona Virus is causing chaos across the globe!

This includes myself!

Having finally found a printer interested in producing the Wizard Laird decks, the virus came at just the wrong time. The final small issues had all been resolved, and the final pre-prodution samples were about to be printed, but unfortunately the chosen printer is based in China, and with the whole country in lock down, the process has come to complete stop.

I hope to have the deck into print soon after the virus has been resolved, and business returns to normal.

Until then, please join me in sending our thoughts to all those affected by this health crisis, and wish everyone a speedy recovery. The world is a big place, but the fact we are all susceptible to something so small is humbling.

During my year end stock take and tidy up, I've put together some decks for sale through a new seconds page.

All these decks come at a reduced price, yet all cards are still presented in perfect condition as you'd only expect. There are also some pre-production sample decks, which are presented in a plain white tuck box, but all other aspects are exactly the same.

For those of you that are lucky enough to own and cherish a Tlydwick Tarot deck, I also have a collection of single cards, which have come from damaged decks. If you are in need any replacement cards for your existing deck please contact me at info@malpertuis.co. Due to an issue with the print process, the only card I have no spares of is the last card in the deck, the King of Coins.

It is with great pleasure that I can now confirm that the Legend of the Wizard Laird deck now has a printer!

I never thought that when I began to investigate the printing process it would be this difficult, I listened to Neil's tales of companies not replying to emails, sending ridiculously over inflated quotes, and generally giving the impression that they were not interested in the work being offered!

Today that has changed, I have accepted a quote and can now begin the final proofing process. There is still a long was to go before the deck in both its sizes are with me in its physical form, but at last I know it will happen.

So, to all those people who are as keen as myself to see and own this deck, please be patient a little while longer.

Coming Soon

I'm sure most people reading this will be familiar with Neil's Legend of the Wizard Laird deck, this was his final project to be completed, at the time of his death he had just managed to secure a printer for the deck and was undergoing the final proofing process. Unfortunately, he shared some of his desires for this deck with his family, he neglected to share which printer he had chosen, so 12 months after his death the task fell to me to complete his final masterpiece - no small task.

Much as he himself struggled, as have I, there has been a very frustrating period of non-communication with several people, but I'm pleased to say that at long last I believe progress is being made. 

Once there is more information on a possible delivery date of these 2 decks, I will post details of the decks and costs.
